Earlier this year the Rushcliffe Academy Trust became the Trent Academies Group with Mr. Crompton operating as Executive Headteacher across Rushcliffe and Farnborough. This week Arnold Hill Academy has asked if it can join the group following the resignation of their Principal in September. Parents of pupils at Arnold Hill have been informed.
This is in line with the current re-alignment of school governance across the country. Outstanding schools and academies are expected to work closely with those that are currently less academically successful. The relationship with Farnborough, which began in February, is already starting to bear fruit and it is now on track to emerge from Special Measures. Arnold Hill is not in Special Measures but their governors have decided the academy will be stronger if it works more closely with others.
There is a lot of expertise at Arnold Hill and Rushcliffe will benefit from the relationship. Rushcliffe itself will continue to operate as it is under the leadership of Mr. Lewis.
More information will be posted as it emerges.
